Do you think your family is weird? I'll bet they're not nearly as weird as the Beaumont family! Mibs Beaumont cannot wait to turn 13. In the Beaumont family, 13 is when you get your savvy (a supernatural magical power). Each one of Mibs's family members has a totally different savvy. Her brother Fish causes hurricanes, her Grandma could capture songs from the radio and store them in glass jars, her cousin Olive can melt ice just by looking at it. Mibs is excited (and nervous) to find out what her savvy will be, but suddenly her Poppa is injured in a car accident. Mibs is left at home to take care of Grandpa and her younger brothers and sisters and, oh yeah - it's her 13th birthday! Yikes! Suddenly Mibs is off on a huge adventure to figure out her savvy, find Poppa and get everything back to normal. Why does she sneak onto a school bus? Why is she so afraid of people drawing on their hands? How will this amazing story end? Read the book and then figure out what your savvy is - click here.
